Life, the Universe & Everything

So I'm pretty psyched. Lost is back in oh... three weeks or so. Now I know that some of you are intimidated by this show. It's dense, 21st century television to be sure. There's a lot going on and I can see how jumping in on the fourth season of a show with a core cast comparable to an Altman movie and plot twists like San Francisco streets could be a little difficult.

Except it isn't, thanks to this handy 8 minute, 15 second (it's a little wink to fans: the numbers 4, 8, 15, 23 and 42 keep reappearing in weird places throughout the series) recap of the first three seasons. Check it:

Now, the writer's strike may rob us of the second half of this season (which would/most likely will suck big time), but by then, you'll have watched the first eight episodes they were able to produce before the strike hit and you'll most likely be hooked (unless you have no built-in "Rad-O-Meter", in which case, see your doctor immediately! Perhaps he can prescribe an ointment or something.), so you can go back and watch the first three seasons at your leisure on the DVD. Which is totally worth it. It's like crack in a television show. For reals.

All hyperbole aside, this show is amazing. I know I've harped on it before and I will continue to do so until every last one of you is as in love with it as I am (which is not possible, but still...). This I swear.

I just saw that you can watch all 3 seasons in HD on abc.com and I have to admit, I was tempted.
